Doofus vs. idiot

  • September 22, 2003, 5:25pm

You are exactly right. A doofus is a person that has a habit of making an "arse" of his or herself. Typically, they've done something obviously thoughtless, embarrasing, graceless, or clumsy, like accidentally tripped their date. But it typically isn't a malicious person. So, calling some one a doofus is saying that the person SEEMS like they commit acts of stupidity, or maladroit often.
